People everywhere are beginning to return back to work this month after long periods at home on the government's furlough scheme during the coronavirus pandemic. To some, it's the end of a holiday, but to others, it's a very welcome return to normality!

Sir Paul McCartney has backed a campaign to stop iconic music venues from closing.
The Beatles star has spoke out in support of Labour MP John Spellar's move to introduce a bill in the Commons that will change planning laws and protect music venues from closing.
He said: ''Without the grassroots clubs, pubs and music venues my career could have been very different. If we don't support music at this level, then the future of music in general is in danger.''

Ahead of his 'Us + Them' tour, Roger Waters does a practise run in New Jersey.
Roger Waters made quite the impression with the dress rehearsal for his 'Us + Them' tour this week in New Jersey, celebrating the release of his brand new album ahead of the official tour kick-off in Missouri this weekend. Joining him in his band were backing singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of the band Lucius.

Waters and Mason, two-thirds of Pink Floyd, said they would be open to playing Glastonbury if they were ever invited.
Two of the remaining three members of prog-rock legends Pink Floyd have raised the tantalising prospect that the group might finally perform at Glastonbury Festival.
At a press conference for the V&A Museum’s upcoming Pink Floyd retrospective exhibition on Thursday (February 16th), the band’s bass player Roger Waters and drummer Nick Mason made a rare joint appearance in public. During the questions, they suggested that they might be up for playing at the iconic festival for the first time.
Presumably, this made Glasto organiser Michael Eavis’s ears prick up with excitement, having previously said that his wishlist for the festival included Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac.

The Pink Floyd guitarist has scored his second solo number one album in the UK.
Dave Gilmour has topped this week’s UK album chart, beating Lana Del Rey to the number one spot. Gilmour previously landed at number one just 10 months ago with band Pink Floyd’s latest release The Endless River.
Lana Del Rey has missed out on the top spot of the UK album chart.
Rattle That Lock gives Gilmour his second chart topper as a solo artist, following 2006’s On An Island. Speaking to OfficialCharts.com Gilmour said, "It's thrilling to get a Number 1 album, we all want to hit the top spot, however long we've been at it, I'm delighted.”

The inflatable, which appears on the front cover of the album 'Animals', has been offered back to Pink Floyd after mistakenly going up for sale.
Pink Floyd’s famous inflatable pig – known as ‘Algie’ – has been withdrawn from auction after being mistakenly placed on sale having spent decades gathering dust in storage. He has been offered back to the prog-rock legends, who are bringing him home.
The 40-foot inflatable animal, which can be seen on the front cover of the Floyd’s 1977 album Animals, famously grounded and delayed flights at Heathrow airport after it broke free of its fastenings on top of Battersea Power Station in London during the December 1976 photoshoot. Algie was taken away by the wind, and was later recovered by the group from a field in Kent.

Pink Floyd’s ‘The Endless River’ has become the the fastest-selling vinyl album this century.
It seems that vinyl is once again back in fashion (thanks hipsters). This year, vinyl sales in the UK have passed the one million mark for the first time since 1996, according to the Official Charts Company. Albums by veterans Pink Floyd and David Bowie have helped boost sales of the format, which achieved the one million milestone last weekend.
Pink Floyd's The Endless River has helped boost vinyl sales in the UK
Currently David Bowie’s new best of collection, Nothing Has Changed, holds the top spot on the vinyl chart replacing last week’s number one Pink Floyd’s The Endless River.
Pink Floyd's last ever album went straight to Number 1.
And they’re back! By them, I obviously mean Pink Floyd and by back, I mean their new album , The Endless River, has topped the UK chart, making this the first Pink Floyd album in ten years to reach the milestone.
They did indeed beat One Direction!
They did give one hell of a teaser though, announcing that The Endless River would be their last ever album. How could fans resist buying it, after that kind of threat? On its release, The Endless River became the third fastest-selling by a single group or artist this year after shifting more than 139,000 copies during the last week.

Real music fans, prepare to rejoice as Pink Floyd become bigger than One Direction. Sort of.
It's frustrating for any musical connoisseur that carefully manipulated pop reigns highest on most music charts, but it looks like psychedelic legends Pink Floyd could beat One Direction on Amazon's most pre-ordered albums list with their final release 'The Endless River'.
The band, whose last album ten years ago entitled 'The Division Bell' became a worldwide number one, managed to easily overtake Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' as most pre-ordered album of 2014 and now their new record may be held up as the most pre-ordered of all time - a title currently held by One Direction's 'Midnight Memories'.

The legendary band’s first new album in 20 years is released on November 10th.
It’s not the first time the band have used the physicist's synthesised voice. Hawking can be heard narrating, ‘Keep Talkin’’ a track from The Division Bell which sampled a British Telecom advert featuring the professor. ‘Talkin' Hawkin’ is not thought to be a sequel to the 1994 track.
